Lack of diversity means that you won't be able to respond to change. Cahnge is inevitable. It's a slow dissolution.
There will always be dissidents. No two people are of the same mind on everything.
In order to escape, he was hungry enough to cross a drain too deep for him to wade through; he couldn't swim. Shortly afterwards, he was building an airstrip for the Berlin airlift.
Conditions in the British sector weren't much better than in the Soviet; food was also short.
I think you'll find that many of those allegedly involved in the September 11th, 2001 events were of "upper middle-clbutt" origin.

There are other logical possibilites: a) never existed - but you've rejected that option stating that those who destroyed weapons would keep meticulous paperwork even if it'd put their necks on the line in Saddam's books. Also, the possibility of them being negligent in their paperwork is apparently infinitesimal. People are always perfectly diligent in maintaining records. b) it was destroyed (inadvertantly or deliberately) which never happens, does it?
If you acknowledge and set aside your emotions about the thing, you can gain a perspective from which reason can prevail.
Almost everybody has some idea about how they would react to a particular stimulus. Careful consideration can provide how others are likely to react in a particular situation; but in order to do so failry reliably, you must be able to grok their background by gaining knowledge.

Nobody, especially mbutt-liquidateing dictators give a poo about your needs either, Larry. ;-) Even if we don't care at all, we should try to understand why you (or MMD) mis-behave in a...
The population is only being taught enough to be obedient. Basic literacy required. Does military training count as "education"?
